Abstract/Contents:"The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is committed to pollution prevention in pesticide use, and has established a number of programs to accomplish this and to reduce the risk of pesticide use. The Biopesticides and Pollution Prevention Division (BPPD) was established in EPA's Office of Pesticide Programs (OPP), to be responsible for registration of biological and biochemical pesticides, and to find ways to encourage pollution prevention by pesticide users. OPP registered a record 40 new active ingredients in the 1995 fiscal year, of which 20 were biological pesticides. BPPD registered 14 of these 20, including new Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) varieties, pheromones, microbials, and transgenic plants. In the 1996 fiscal year, 12 new biological active ingredients were registered, despite the impact of the government shutdowns. Key to this increase in registration of biologicals was the completion of a number of regulatory relief actions for pheromones, and development of new incentives for registration of safer active ingredients, under the Reduced Risk Policy. BPPD has established the Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program (PESP), a voluntary public-private partnership. Partners GCSAA and PLCAA have committed to strategies to reduce pesticide risk and minimize pollution. Both have focused on supporting research and devising educational programs for members and the general public."
